    The Lightning were outshot 39-18 in the game.

    When the Detroit Red Wings come to town, it's an opportunity for every other team to see how they measure up. Whether you like Detroit or not, they have been almost inarguably the most successful franchise in hockey for more than a decade. They have a system and a program, and it doesn't matter who the players are or even who the coaches are, they win hockey game. That's how they could absorb the losses of Hall of Fame caliber players like Steve Yzerman and Brendan Shanahan without skipping a beat. They are the measuring stick.

    In the 2003-2004 regular season when the Lightning scratched a clawed their way to a point against Detroit in a very evenly matched contest between what would eventually become the first and second highest point totals in the league, it became very clear the Lightning were a legit contender for the Stanley Cup they hoisted at the end of that season. Tonight? Not. Even. Close. Yeah, I know it was a one goal game on paper, but when you get outshot by more than a 2:1 ratio and get completely outclassed in the final frame when you entered the period with a one goal lead to protect, it shows that you're miles behind the big dogs.

    Now the Lightning have their first three game regulation losing streak of the season, and one has to wonder if the scenario we wondered about this summer on Bolt Prospects is potentially about to come to pass. Will the organization pull together, or does this all degenerate into a circular firing squad? Honestly, I think there's only two people who can really pull this out of the gutter right now: Vincent Lecavalier and Martin St. Louis. This is their team and it's been their team for years. The solutions clearly aren't coming from the front office or the coaching staff, so they need to come from inside the room from the team leaders.

    Steven Stamkos was -1 in 9:51 with 1 hit and was 40% on draws.

    Tyrell’s goal came while shorthanded and two of his assists came on the power play. Tyrell is now seventh in the league in points and second in goals. Vancouver power forward Evander Kane (pictured - 2009 eligible) leads all scorers with 33 points in 18 games. He is indeed named after former heavyweight boxer Evander Holyfield.

    C James Wright, VAN: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 18 GP, 9-9-18, +13, 6 PIM

    Good start to a long road trip.

    NOR-4
    LOW-3

    Karri Ramo stopped 31 of 34 shots faced for the win.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    LOW Wiseman, (1) (Rheaume, DiSalvatore), 4:07 (PP)
    NOR Heward, (2) (Jones, Downie), 5:05 (PP)
    LOW DiSalvatore, (2) (Swift), 5:41
    NOR Heward, (3) (Hutchinson, Downie), 10:56 (PP)
    NOR Szczechura, (6) (Segal, Ramo), 11:12

    Third Period
    LOW Zharkov, (4) (Corrente, Swift), 8:17
    NOR Konopka, (4) (Downie, Hutchinson), 18:41

    Jamie Heward was named the game's first star.

    Steve Downie had his first point in an Admirals uniform on Heward's power play marker. Zenon Konopka has a three game goal scoring streak and not-so-coincidentally, the Admirals have a three game winning streak. Veteran Andrew Hutchinson also has had two multi-point games over that stretch. Now if the Ads can get Wyatt Smith and Brandon Bochenski off the milk carton, they'll really be cooking.

    Fadden getting back to normal ... Cunti too.

  • 5 years 23 weeks ago

    The South Carolina Stingrays blanked the punchless Lynx 4-0 in an afternoon tilt at James Brown Arena. The Lynx, coming off an impressive offensive effort after losing Slattenren and Keller to the AHL, put up 25 shots but Washington Capitals 2006 2nd round rookie prospect netminder Michal Neuvirth slammed the door shut for his first professional shutout. Lighting rookie prospect goaltender Riku Helenius allowed four goals on 26 shots, while Kevin Quick was scoreless on four shots. Forward Chris Lawrence who was reassigned to Augusta from Norfolk by the Lighting earlier in the day, has not yet joined the team.

    South Carolina 4 @ Augusta 0
    G Riku Helenius: 4 GA; 60:00 MIN; 22 SV; 26 SH
    D Kevin Quick: 0-0-0; E; 0 PIM; 4 SOG
    F Chris Lawrence: did not play

    Augusta falls to 5-4-1 and hits the road for a back-to-back tilt against the Florida Everblades in Estero next Friday and Saturday.

    Also appearing in the tournament among Lightning prospects was Sweden's Johan Harju. "Big Joe" was scoreless with just 1 shot on goal in 3 games.
